Generation X women are embracing menopause. No longer an embarrassing spotlight on aging. Women of a certain age today are celebrating the change as a “rite of passage” with the trend of holding menopause parties. It is, as the kids would say, a thing!

Author of Growing Younger Gracefully, Sheena Nancy Sarles notes that she does see a shift in women embracing this change Aging and menopause are natural progressions in life. I encourage women to embrace it and give thanks that we are gifted with the opportunity to age because the reality is that as long as we are living, we are all aging. It has been wonderful to see this generation celebrating their journey as a woman by leaning into this phase of life.”
